Gain by having a place to go.

The fourth line:
An ample beam. Fortunate,

unless there has been stinting.
The fifth line:
Withered wood blooms with flowers.

An old woman takes a husband.

Neither fault nor praise.

18 Poison

The Statement of the second hexagram

Poison brings the great continuing.
Advance across the great river.
Before starting: three days.
After starting: three days.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

The lake overwhelms
the trees: great excess.
The noble one stands alone
without fear,
and can withdraw
from the world
without sorrow.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

Wind below the mountain:
poison. The noble one
stirs the people
and nourishes virtue.
